The Sheikh Zayed Private Academy for Boys aims to prepare students for the future by providing an education which emphasizes leadership and citizenship skills as well as academic achievement. We live by our motto “Honoring the past, educating for the future” and develop 21st century skills through a best practice American curriculum while remaining true to our proud Emirati heritage. The curriculum is designed to challenge every student’s skills and celebrate their individuality by connecting previous knowledge with personal experience, interests, talents and passions. It develops curiosity, fundamental to lifelong learning, and encourages learning beyond the confines of the classroom. Our modern provision is enhanced through the school’s Apple Distinguished School status, which contributes to developing and embedding engagement and enthusiasm. Secondary students in Grade 6 and up also participate in the Eyal Zayed Program. Developed in collaboration with the armed forces of the United Arab Emirates, this truly unique program encourages active involvement with the local community and fosters confidence, self-reliance, initiative, loyalty and a sense of service; preparing them for life beyond school. The stunning campus stretches across 22,000 sqm and has a capacity for 1,400 students from KG1 to Grade 12. Transparent walls and interdisciplinary learning spaces are designed to move the learning environment out of the closed classroom and connect teachers, students and the community to the world of knowledge.
